San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts proudly presents, True Texas II: Folk & Traditional Arts from the Concho Valley to the Rio Grande, an exhibit made possible through generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Bank, Texas Commission on the Arts and Texas Folklife.
From the familiar—intricate hand sewn quilts and finely engraved silver belt buckles—to the more obscure—custom built spinning wheels to life-size “La Catrina” figures crafted with brown paper, the exhibit will give visitors a rare, first ever opportunity to view the work of 30 juried folk and traditional artists--generational folk/traditional art forms that have helped shape the unique character of the region.
An outgrowth of fieldwork carried out last fall by folklorist Douglas Manger across nine of the 18 counties served by the museum, the exhibit will be presented in the museum’s two state-of-the-art top tier galleries under the direction of Howard Taylor, director of the museum, and Laura Huckaby, exhibit designer.
The exhibit will run from September 22 through November 27, 2022. The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts is located at 1 Love Street, San Angelo, Texas. Operating hours are from 11 AM to 4 PM, Tuesday through Saturday. The opening reception will take place on Thursday, September 22, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. All are welcome.
